I also want to know,because I want to place my droplet in singapore instead of San Francisco~
Me too! SG is much closer than SF to the consumers of the site hosted on my current droplet.
Create a snapshot of the current droplet then transfer it to SG.

After the transfer, create a new droplet at SG with the snapshot.

I've tried that before, the transfer seems take hours to complete.
I am now following the instruction found here:

Did it work? I want to move it to SGP1
